  • Studio Art Minor

    Hours: 21 credits, completed with minimum grades of C

    The minor in studio art provides the opportunity to combine creative and artistic practice with other academic pursuits. Students seeking this minor are not necessarily pursuing careers as practicing professional artists; rather, they are looking to enhance their programs of study with an interdisciplinary learning experience that develops their perceptual, creative problem solving and visual communication skills.

    The curriculum guides students toward coursework that the art faculty considers essential to understanding art making in a material and conceptual sense. Students completing the minor in studio art will graduate from UF with a more versatile and well-rounded skillset sought by many disciplines, industries and professions.

    The minor is available to all UF undergraduates, except those majoring in art, art education, graphic design and visual art studies. Interested students must meet with the School of Art and Art History undergraduate adviser to apply.

    • Studio art related majors (art, art education, graphic design and visual art studies) have priority access to studio classes. Art studio minors must work with the SA+AH adviser to gain access to studio courses on a space-available basis.
    • Independent studies and internships will not fulfill credits for this minor.
    • 15 credits of the 21 total and all 3000/4000-level coursework must be taken at UF.
    • Up to six credits of 2000-level coursework may be transferred in from another institution or accelerated mechanism (e.g., AP, IB) or may be taken from UF non-art major studio courses. All transfer credits are subject to SA+AH approval.
    • Credit taken toward this minor cannot also be applied to any studio certificate program.
